Amanda Klopping, M.A.Ed. @JunTigTeacher@MelanieMeehan1 @mattdelapena #MGBookChat The sad reality is, we aren't shielding them from anything. We are disallowing their chance to process their own darkness. So many kids are relieved to find that someone gets their hidden emotions.
This is why I’m always looking for MG that “pushes boundaries” we need stories that talk about issues kids today are dealing with. #MSWL

HELLO THIS BUT YA OR MG IS HARDCORE ON MY #MSWL
Am I too late for #MSWL Day? I’m looking for laugh-out-loud MG with a great ‘voicey’ protagonist! Also fab twisty mysteries in MG. And a swoony romance/love story in YA, especially (but not exclusively) LGBTQIA please! See my profile & sub guidelines at skylark-literary.com
Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)
Anything mg or YA that can be comped to AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER, especially if it heals my poor Zutara-shipping heart. Most of all, I love the character interactions in ATLB, the fully-realized sweetness and depth. Plus the unique world! #MSWL
Ask @ryandouglassw, @KatyaDeBecerra, @LizParkerWrites and @2furiosa - I like my YA dark. Horror, dark fantasy, paranormal, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, spirits. Scare me and you’ll win my heart. #MSWL MG, YA, and Adult.
